Joe Rohde Auctioning Off Animal Kingdom Opening Day Backpack
If you’re a fan of former Walt Disney World Imagineer Joe Rohde, one of the visionaries behind Animal Kingdom theme park then you may want to head over to eBay! Joe took to Instagram earlier today to announce that he is auctioning off some remnants form his Disney days.

As you can see from the post above, one of the items currently up for grabs is a pretty awesome Animal Kingdom opening day backpack which is currently up for grabs on eBay! We’ve found the listing so let’s take a closer look:
It should be noted that items are currently being sold as a lot by a friend of Joe’s on his behalf! The items currently have a bid of $1375.00 and the auction ends at 3pm on Wednesday.
Now I will say that I’ve been watching this sale closely and that bidding is going up and fast.
Other items in the lot include the Grand Opening Day Celebration glass plaque pictured above.
The auction also includes this brown Disney’s Animal Kingdom Grand Opening Celebration Baseball Cap that is dated “1990.”
Below you can also see an American Express, Disney’s Animal Kingdom Fanny Pack which says Grand Opening and features the opening date of the park.
There are also two bottles of Animal Kingdom opening day Coca-Cola Bottles included.
They come with the orange commemorative cannister that you see above.
The bottles are glass and even feature Disney Animal Kingdom artwork on the front!
There’s also a Walt Disney World Explorer CD-ROM.
It features the Walt Disney World Explorer Game which includes Animal Kingdom.
There’s also an opening day welcome letter- see below.
You can find a link to the auction here.
Not one to retire, we also announced earlier this year that Joe has set his sights on “the final frontier.” The former Imagineer has reportedly signed on with Virgin Galactic where he will serve as the businesses’ first “experience architect.” Virgin Galactic is Sir Richard Branson’s company devoted to commercial space travel!
